More than 4 billion per month

According to the results of the first seven months of 2022, the turnover of bars, cafes and restaurants in Tatarstan amounts to 28.72 billion rubles. Taking inflation into account, it remained at the level of the same period last year and, in absolute figures, the increase was 12%.

The largest turnover of catering establishments in Tatarstan was recorded in March — 4.27 billion. This can be attributed to the cancellation of QR codes in Tatarstan that vaccinated citizens received – they were needed when visiting public places, including cafes and restaurants, from November 22, 2021. They stopped operate on February 21, after which catering establishments recorded an increase in income.

February 2022 proved less successful, during which people in Tatarstan still lived within the limits of anti-Covid-19 restrictions – not everyone could visit cafes, bars and restaurants even if they wanted to. During the last month of winter, the turnover of catering establishments turned out to be the weakest of all the first seven months — 3.66 billion rubles. At the same time, it turned out to be 3.6% higher than in the same month last year.

The turnover of catering establishments in Tatarstan did not exceed 4 billion rubles, and in January — 3.8 billion rubles. At that time, in the republic, as in other regions of Russia, anti-Covid-19 restrictions were in effect. Perhaps only holidays and New Year’s holidays helped the first month of the year to “overtake” February.

In April, the turnover of catering establishments after a jump in March without a QR code fell slightly and amounted to 4.2 billion rubles. However, in May it already reached 4.3 billion rubles. The increase in the indicator can be attributed to the onset of heat and the beginning of the opening of the verandas, which allow the restaurant to receive more income because it is possible to receive a greater number of customers — about 90% of restaurants opened their verandas already on April 30 this spring. However, this month of May turned out to be cold, and as a result, the income of restaurants in Kazan with terraces and summer verandas fell by 15% compared to May 2021, said Galina Sharafutdinova, executive director of the Kazan Restaurant and Hotel Association. .
